Physical Sweeper Ursaring (Guts)

Ursaring is a phenomenal Physical Sweeper. It's goal is to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. In the old days before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type. Flame Orb will burn Ursaring at the end of the turn which will activate Ursaring's Guts ability. With Guts, if Ursaring is statused its attack is 1.5x; ignores burn halving physical damage. Facade's damage doubles when the user has a status affliction. Combine that with Guts to seriously give Ursaring a sweet boost.

Facade is a physical STAB-boosted 70-base power Normal-type move (power doubles if Ursaring is burn/poison/paralyzed).
Double-Edge is a physical STAB-boosted 120-base power Normal-type move (has 1/3 recoil).
Earthquake is a physical 100-base power Ground-type move (hits adjacent pokemon. power doubles on dig).
Brick Break is a physical 75-base power Fighting-type move (destroys screens, even if the target is immune).
